Inter coach Antonio Conte will take charge of a team in an official match for the 500th time in his career when the Nerazzurri visit Torino tomorrow.
As reported in today’s newspaper edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Serie A clash against the Granata at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino will be of even greater significance to Conte, as his side look to maintain their six point lead at the top of the table.
The 51-year-old has built up the impressive tally through spells at Arezzo, Bari, Atalanta and Siena, before taking the helm at Juventus in 2011 and leading the Bianconeri to the Scudetto in all three of his seasons there.
Conte then took charge of the Italian national team before a successful stint at Premier League club Chelsea and finally joining Inter in 2019.
Curiously, he has never won any of the milestone matches in his career, with his 100th match ending in Atalanta’s defeat to Livorno, whilst Chelsea and Benfica drew in the 200th and 300th matches respectively, both during his spell at Juventus.
Finally, Conte’s 400th match was soured by defeat to Tottenham Hotspur whilst at Chelsea.
